in the obama years in part because of obama politics, is that accurate? >> well, the spike has occurred, really, over the past 20 years and i've seen incomes falling and heard the stat over and over again, how we've got personal wealth falling under obama policies and the other thing you need to remember, too, is that under the obama administration, it's not simply buying a different one for taxpayers, what it's been a huge expansion of the welfare state what. we see now, we've got 80 programs, 77 7 770 billion a year on the welfare programs that's what we're focusing on if we're talking about the size of government. stuart: i want to go back to the poll, 79% think that we should all pay, yes, we should be be paying something. now, it occurs to me that if push comes to shove and i tell somebody who is not currently paying federal income tax, you should, and you will pay federal income tax, you can't get elected, can you? >> well, listen, this is what the romney campaign needs to be more explicit about, what they should be doing after they elected paul ryan as the vice-president nominee, becaus
've written about this year is how the obama campaign is adopting these experimental methods to measure the effect of their mail and online ads and tv ads. it's more complicated and more expensive but it's a way of trying to break out of the line solely on the polls and focus groups that try to ask voters to imagine in this sort of artificial setting what would change their mind, and instead introduce them to information in the real world to believe they are basically being examined and see if it actually does change their mind. so that is a one next way of using these experimental techniques to see what really does move the voters and get out of the sort of the artificial setting of the focus groups alone. >> host: on that note with the obama campaign, since they have had four years ago time to study and now they have for years later, is there any innovative technique they're using now, any more that you can't -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions, the afl-cio, emily's list over the years in certain states in th

: so on that note with the obama campaign since they have had four years ago time to test it and now they have four years later, is is there any innovative or different techniques they are using now any more than -- >> guest: the programs are really the thing and they have been used in small narrow ways by some institutions the afl-cio, emily's list, over the years and in certain states but using them in a presidential campaign as the obama campaign has this year is a major advance. sort of the way that the people of tested messages historically is that you either have a poll that asks somebody who they support and tells them a bunch of information asked them again and you see if anybody moves are you ask them direct. if i told you that mitt romney had to pay taxes for x number of years would it make you more or less likely to vote for him? some people move or tell you that they would move. people telling you that they would move is a pretty sort of conjectural thing. i would not cognitively trust anybody who told you what they would do under a hypothetical scenario if they learned a

obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we should be able to do it. you look at the polls, there's a big lead for president obama in at least one of the polls. but again high unemployment, are you surprised the polls have swung as much as they have in these key swing states to president obama this year? >> i'm surprised by anything that happens in politics especially presidential politics. i have been saying from a year now, if on election day people go in the voting booth and say this is a choice between president obama and the republican candidate, then the president will probably win. if people go into to the polls on election day and say this is a referendum on the last four years, then president obama would probably lose. what's happened over the last several months is more and more people are being to question the credentials of romney and therefore it turns into a choice and i think in that case the president is doing very well. i never expected to see a poll in this election that says the president is able to handle the economy than the republican chal
65, 66 from 76 to 80, 93, 94 and the first two years of obama each time they suffered a fairly catastrophic decline in the vote share which says they've not been able to articulate the need broad support in the community especially the working class community the the other part, the republicans will certainly be a big point of the debate. it's entirely possible that romney will run as any republican challenger ever. pulling on the whites bush '88 come all 56 to 61% of whites range. romani could come right in that range and lose, and i think that is down to -- it should precipitate a conversation in the party. this is the last time anyone will try to do this that is entirely on the back. it's unrealistic when 62 or 63, but the existing collision is so dependent on the community that are uneasy with the change that they are just paralyzed in the intellectual understanding the have to reach out to the hispanics and difficulty they are fighting it in degrees note here at the end. the republican platform in addition to everything else it says about immigration, so any straight defea

with their base in that way. >> eliot: president obama got significant criticism on the first couple of years of his first term on issues such as immigration and lesbian/gay issues as well and then suddenly there when he needed the base to come back he came out in support of same-sex marriage. and that solidified him as yes, once again he is our candidate. >> that's right. >> eliot: there you see him as the nimble politician, and i think that has carried him forward. >> as with bill clinton he is enemies right at the moment of election where you have this hard core opposition as clinton did with newt gingrich. and then people say maybe he'll unleash in the second term. i think people are concerned with obama as well, who is the real obama. >> eliot: yeah. but we do know that mitt romney is being sunk but his apparently feelty to the far right. and david stockman said this guy is a joker. >> that's right. they look at romney and say this is too far. the right has gone to an extreme that we never would have envisioned or endorsed and the country cannot sustain. this deep of

that president obama ran four years ago when he ran on hope and change. now what he is running on is, this is the best we can do, america. we contrasted that, by the way, in our editorial this morning, with john f. kennedy in 1960 running against the eisenhower and nixon economy. at that time the economy was growing 2.5 to 3 percent and john f. kennedy famously said, we can do better. he minute by that, we should aspire to 4 percent or 5 percent economic growth. it is demoralizing when the president said we are only growing at 1.6 percent or 1.7 percent but this is the best we can do. >>neil: that is the worse john f. kennedy impression ever. i am kidding. >>guest: i am in chicago. i cannot do the boston accent. >>imus: we have mentioned this in the past. we had years of getting used to crappy numbers. when they are not as bad we do a jig. i can remember, as you can remember, and i don't think we are that sold, steve, that this would be laughable in any country, yet, maybe because we got used to so little we are grateful for so little. >>guest: there is some truth to that. people are

last year's u.n. conference, president obama met separately with more than a dozen world leaders. this year he had no such meetings scheduled prompting criticism he is more focused on campaigning than governing. in his place, secretary of state hillary clinton met with almost 20 world leaders. jake tapper, abc news, the white house. >>> iran's president mahmoud ahmadinejad has his turn before the u.n. delegates later today. ahead of his speech, ahmadinejad tells the associated press a new world order needs to emerge. away from american bullying and domination. he says despite international sanctions over its nuclear program, iran is better off than it was when he took office back in 2005. >> he is known for getting up at the mike saying pretty in -- inflammatory things. you will see some folks walk out when he gets to certain parts of his speech. we have seen this play out before. and the outcry over the nuclear program, he is saying it is an excuse by the west to dominate his country. talk about the nuclear program there. but it's -- he is a controversial figure. again you are
. the year after president obama was sworn -- the year he was sworn in, 2009, because of the bush -- the economic crisis this country lost 4.3 million jobs. these are just raw numbers folks. since 2010, this country has gained between 4.4 and 4.6 million jobs. so just on flat-out numbers obama has brought back all the jobs lost under george w. bush and then added some to the top. all right. number one. number two these numbers show that under president obama, we had a faster rate of job creation than under george bush i first term or george bush ii, the second term. number three, the numbers also show reported in "the new york times" as well that under democratic presidents, we have created more jobs in this country than under any republican president. that's true under john f. kennedy, under lyndon johnson under jimmy carter, under bill clinton, and under barack obama. but the main thing is on pure, flat numbers don't lie. obama has created more jobs than -- not only more jobs than george w. bush. he's brought
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
